Recognition of prior specialist training

Apply to have your prior specialist training recognised. If you are not already working in New Zealand, you need to apply to the Medical Council of New Zealand for a practising certificate and provisional vocational registration as a general practitioner before applying to become a Fellow of the College. Once you have obtained a practising certificate and provisional vocational registration as a general practitioner, there are a number of pathways to Fellowship depending on your prior experience and training.
